The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Texas Farm Service Agency Executive Director Juan M. Garcia reminds eligible ranchers and livestock producers of the Jan. 30, 2012, deadline for applying for benefits under the provisions of the Livestock Forage Disaster Program for losses incurred during the 2011 crop year. In addition to the counties that became eligible earlier in the year, the following counties triggered on or after April 14, according to a USDA press release.

Wilson and Karnes counties have met the Livestock Forage Disaster Program trigger requirements for small grains and native and improved grasses and for forage sorghum.

Atascosa and Bexar counties have also met the Livestock Forage Disaster Program trigger requirements for forage sorghum.

“We anticipate more counties may become eligible between now and the end of September, so livestock producers should stay tuned,” Garcia said.

The Livestock Forage Disaster Program provides payments to eligible livestock producers that have suffered livestock grazing losses due to qualifying drought or fire. Fire losses apply only to federally managed rangeland. For losses due to drought, qualifying drought ratings are determined using the U.S. Drought Monitor located at http://www.drought.unl.edu/dm/monitor.html.

In order for a livestock program applicant to qualify for program benefits, the applicant must have purchased insurance coverage through Farm Service Agency’s Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program or the Pasture, Rangeland and Forage Insurance-Rainfall Index for Grazing program offered through the Risk Management Agency.

For more information, contact your local Farm Service Agency office. Information can also be obtained online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov .
